Personally, as I use a hand-built backend, I also hand-compiled the
XBox frontend (With the aid of DistCC to share some of the work and
speed up the compile) from SVN.

This meant (Once I'd sorted the build dependancies) I had a perfectly
working frontend, that does everything I need. With an NFS share from
my combined Frontend/Backend for Videos and Music, it's all good.
